Chevy Versus the Foreign Cars!

Just came across this video the other day and found it highly interesting.
Produced in the early 1970's, possibly before the 1973 oil crisis?
Appears to be a "motivational video" aimed at employees.
The background music is awesome.
The narrator sounds quite agitated.

Back in the day I remember seeing a news clip about foreign car protestors trying to destroy a Datsun (now Nissan). They put a brick on the gas pedal in neutral but it howled for a half hour without grenading. They ended up taking sledge hammers to it for the kill.

LOL

There was some hostility no doubt!

Even today, many union parking lots will not allow non-unionmade cars in their lot:



This one reminds me of the old chestnut:



Vintage hammertime!

And now Chevy makes one car worth buying. Not a hard decision these days...
